Although the setting has changed from Tuscany to Tokyo, Certified Copy director Abbas Kiarostami once again seems to be exploring themes of perception and mistaken identity in his latest film, Like Someone in Love.
Rin Takanashi plays a college student moonlighting as an escort. After spending an apparently sexless evening with an elderly new client (Tadashi Okuno), she allows him to drive her to class the next morning — where they’re spotted by her jealous boyfriend (Ryo Kase), who assumes the old man must be her grandfather. And things get odder from there. Watch the new trailer after the jump.
